Beep Beep! We loved creating our own mini BB-8 droid. We followed a template and cut out all of it's designs to make it look like the real BB-8.
For our art project on Tuesday, we got a glimps of the dark side while showing our artistic skills. Each student followed along as I drew step by step the different parts of the Stormtrooper helmet. Afterwards, the students could color them in with sharpies to bring some color and light to the dark side.
Inspired by the beloved Star Wars character Chewie, we made "chewie" chocolate chip cookies. We mixed the ingredients and rolled the cookie dough balls on the cookie sheets to bake. We had fun cracking eggs and mixing all the ingredients together. After they baked, they were so warm and chewy, we couldn't wait to eat them!
We couldn't have Star Wars week without referencing some of the crazy creatures and aliens from the movies-and we thought Jabba the Hutt would be perfect! Because Jabba is so slug-like, we made Jabba the Hutt oobleck to play with, inspired by him! It was fun to feel the different textures of the oobleck and put our hands (and sometimes part of our arm) in the green slime!
We created our own lightsabers out of pool noodles and some tape! It was easy to recreate our own but also put our own stamp on the design by using different tape and markers. After we were done, we had duals and played lightsaber tag on the field outside. We had so much fun practicing our lightsaber skills.

We swam on one of the hottest days yet! It was so hot, we couldn't wait to get into the pool. Almost all of our after schoolers went in and we hope that trend continues as our last few weeks come to and end. We love to swim!
Check out all the fun we had during indoor free time this week!
